The online galleries/magazine features everyone runs on "worst/most memorable Oscar red carpet outfits).  How many times do we have to see Cher's Bob Mackie getup, Kim Basinger's one sleeved, self designed outfit, Demi Moore's bike shorts, Geena davis's mini-in-the-the front gown, and the freakin' Swan dress?

Since the red carpet pre-show and the best-and-worst magazine covers have become such a staple, no one takes real risks anymore.  Most of the Oscar "worsts" in recent years have been because a dress is boring or matronly, therefore forgettable, therefore not worth bringing up in a "worst of" retrospective.

So retire that feature, please.  Yes, they were all entertainingly awful outfits.  But we've seen them 10 times each.

Also, stop naming Diane Keaton's suit-and-derby-hat outfit from 2004 a "worst".  I think she looks adorable and since she's not really a Sarandon or a Mirren who can pull off sexy looks in her 60s, like the other 98% of the population, she works what she has.

the red carpet pre-show

that pretty much sums it up for me.

I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I always used to like the Oscar wrap-up issue of People that comes out after the Oscars but it's no fun anymore :(  It was one of the 2-3 issues a year I would always feel compelled to buy.

Actually given the way the awards shows have piled up since January, they should do one big award-season wrap up covering the outfits from all the music and movie award shows, that would probably give them enough material.  Especially since then they'll be able to include a 4 page feature on Lady Gaga alone.

the slate culture gabfest was saying this a couple eps ago. I never read it but they were also saying it use to be great and now is terrible.

Yeah. Especially boys that take forever to respond to PMs.
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

So We're gonna go with people in general? Or maybe non-filmspotters?
